At the IFCA Star Awards 2022, the Indian Flexible Packaging and Folding Carton Manufacturers Association (IFCA) honoured hubergroup Print Solutions with two awards in the category “Innovation R&D”. The two award-winning products are HYDRO-LAC GA Oxygen Barrier Coating and the offset ink MGA CONTACT.
hubergroup’s products convinced the independent jury of experts due to their innovative character: The oxygen barrier coating stands out due to its sustainability efforts. It protects packaged food from oxygen and, thus, enables mono-material packaging for oxygen-sensitive foods such as nuts. Consequently, the packaging is easier to recycle and can be returned to the material cycle.
The sheet-fed offset ink MGA CONTACT scores with creativity: Thanks to carefully selected raw materials, the ink series is suitable for safe printing on the inside of paper and cardboard food packaging. Thus, brand owners and packaging designers receive have twice as much space for information and creativity.
Suresh Kalra, Managing Director India & President Asia at hubergroup, is very pleased about this recognition: “At hubergroup, we place great emphasis on driving the advancement of sustainable, safe packaging. We, therefore, put a lot of energy into the research and development of innovative as well as creative products such as our HYDRO-LAC GA Oxygen Barrier Coating or MGA CONTACT.”
